– Cormac McCarthy, The Road
The Road (2006) is a post-apocalyptic novel by Cormac McCarthy, and a fine example of ‘literary’ sf. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2007 and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction in 2006.
The novel, written in McCarthy’s characteristic pared-down prose, tells the story of an unnamed protagonist and his young son as they journey down a desolate road in post-apocalyptic America.
